Bobby Lashley, a former WWE champion, has signed a three-year deal with Shark Fights, according to a report by Fox Sports on Friday.
Lashley will likely make his debut on the Fuel TV series in November at a site in Missouri.
Lashley, who runs his own American Top Team affiliate in Colorado, defeated John Ott in his last fight.
“It’s going to give me the opportunity to get some fights under my belt,” Lashley said.
Lashley (6-1) won his first five professional fights after leaving pro wrestling, but was stopped by Chuck Griggs at a Strikeforce event and left the company.
